Waiting on Wednesday: UNIQUE AS HECK Edition

Hosted at Breaking the Spine and original picture credits go to ハツ子

I admit, my titling skills (Unique as HECK? Really, Gianna? REALLY?) is a bit of a fail right now, BUT these premises just sound so good and fascinating to me that it stunned me SPEECHLESS. :D

Touched by Corrine Jackson

Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll be coming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first.

No senses? How does the romance function then? AND he has to KILL HER? FASCINATING.


Undeadly by Michele Vail

The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died. I brought him back to life. Then things got a little weird...

Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper-and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath. Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath. Who seems to hate her guts.

Rath will be watching closely to be sure she completes her first assignment-reaping Rick, the boy who should have died. The boy she still wants to be with. To make matters worse, students at the academy start turning up catatonic, and accusations fly-against Molly. The only way out of this mess? To go through hell. Literally.

I love it when books are set in academies. AND WHAT IS THIS INSANITY? Necromancy galore? What may seem to be a very hot teacher? I EAT UP teacher x student relationships in novels/manga. (Wait, I don't even know if there will be a relationship between Rath and Molly. AWKWARD.)

 Think Vampire Academy series and Rose x Dimitri. (Although, I can't say that I support that in real life... Well, that's the beauty of fictional novels. It's not real!) Even though there looks like it's going to be a love triangle, I'll still check this ouuut~

Those book look really interesting! Fabulous choices today! Can't wait to get my hands on them! Stop by My WOW?

Touched sounds interesting, although that is EXACTLY how healing works in Maria V. Snyder's Touch of Power, which I loved, so I might be picky about that.

Very excited for Undeadly! PRETTY COVER = I want.

My WoW

OH MY GOD GIANNA A NEW DESIGN WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN. Looks cayuuute, girrrrl. Super summer-y! <33 :) As for the post... Hm. While you work on your titling skills, I'll work on my reading skills, because seriously... I spent like two minutes thinking it said "TILTING skills," so I was like, "What? Tilting? WHAT?" And then, I realized I misread it. :P Yep. I'm a smart one. Undeadly sounds super fantastic, oh my gosh. I remember I saw it, like, last year on GR and it said it would release in like February of 2012 or something, and then they moved it wayyyyy forward. :( Made me sad. But oh well. I eat up teacher x student relationships, too! As long as the age difference isn't creepy. Lol. Anyway. Awesome post, Gianna! <333
